right have been denied by an oppressive law that says in order for churches to qualify for tax-exempt status they are absolutely printd from directly or indirectly participating in or intervening in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for elective public office. folks, this law is just another example of obama's war on religion. which he cleverly passed in 1954.

size would have the same spending obligations as laid out in the law, and he and i have had many conversations where he's made it clear where that was always his understanding, and late 2010, several workers and their advocates came to my office to explain that in their view, employers had found and were exploiting a loophole in the health and security ordinance, a small number of businesses of employers were voiding the majority of their spending requirement by allocating money to what is known as a health reimbursement account. often, using these accounts to severely restrict the types of services that the accounts could be used for often providing no notice of the existence of the accounts to their workers and then reclaiming the majority of money allocated to those accounts at the end of the year. we also discovered that many of these employers were profiting from the law by charging surcharges in the name of employee health care and then pocketing the majority of the money that was collected from consumers in san francisco. so, given that workers were not receiving the healt

we have spent the last few weeks telling you about the suppress sieve voter laws hastily passed by republican-led state legislatures claiming to be defending democracy against the threat of voter fraud. we have also told you that the laws themselves are the real threat to our democracy, because they would by design disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters. well, on thursday, republicans finally found evidence that the myth of voter fraud is very real and they found it right in their own party. investigators in six florida counties have opened a criminal inquiry into hundreds of cases of suspected voter fraud committed by a gop consulting firm. the republican national committee hired to register republican voters for the november 6th election. the fraud accusations against the firm strategic allied consulting began when 304 registration forms were dropped off at a palm beach elections office. 106 of them were flagged as fraudulent. after that initial discovery, possible election fraud was also reported in florida's os coloo sa, pos coe, santa rosa lee and clay counties. if
that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted construct from a legal perspective. it could be competency to be executed, it could be competency to commit a crime. it could be competency to contribute to the decision as to whether voluntarily commit yourself to a mental hospital. it could be competency to participate in an abortion decision. so competency means many different things. the first thing you have to do as a scientist is ask the question, well, what does the law mean by it because if you want me to measure it, i have to somehow apply it. so going back to the question of free will, because a scientist can't operationally define it, they can't measure it, they're not really that much use to legal debates about free will. now, what does it mean on the legal side? i actually think the idea of free will or what is often referred to as volitional control plays a very big part in legal systems, but i think in the legal systems, we don't
of these employers were profiting from the law by charging surcharges in the name of employee health care and then pocketing the majority of the money that was collected from consumers in san francisco. so, given that workers were not receiving the health care that we all intended them to receive, it was unfair that the vast majority of businesses and something else that we found out that in fact the vast majority of businesses are covered by the health and security ordinance in san francisco are doing the right thing and are following not only the letter but the spirit of the law. and so it was in response to these concerns that were raised to us by workers, by consumer advocates and a number of people in the community that we introduce legislation to close this loophole sx, the legislation that we introduced was a very simple reasonable piece of legislation that said that when the health and security ordinance says that you have to spend money on health care, the word spend or expenditure means spend expenditure, means making an expenditure, not collecting money and not spending that, a

might have evidence that jesus christ had a wife. last week, a law professor who happens to be running for national office, was still defending her american indian ancestry. in fact, the liberal professor, elizabeth warren, has been talking about this since last spring, when the issue came up during her campaign to unseat senator scott brown, a republican. miss warren is a star in the democratic universe, a new and improved hillary clinton. perhaps even a presidential candidate, they say. she spent time as an adviser to president obam abut as the story goes, the republicans and even perhaps a few democrats ran her out of town. senator brown, if you haven't been paying attention, won his traditionally democratic seat in a special election after the death of senator ted kennedy, a tipoff to the white house that trouble lurk in the land of hope and change. so this is an extremely critical election for both parties as they fight to control the u.s. senate. it is a wonder that senator brown won an election in the people's republic of massachusetts t. might even take a miracle for him to hol
violate, violates the regulations of international law on the principles of free trade, and raises questions about the legality and morality of such practices. based on this, we call for lifting the embargo imposed on cuba by the united states for decades. we also renew our call for lifting and stopping all unilateral coercive measures imposed on the peoples of other countries, such as venezuela, belarus, iran, syria and the democratic people's republic of korea. mr. president, our aspiration to achieve a positive reform of the international organization stems from our desire to find a world based on justice, security and prosperity for all the peoples of the world, away from the colonial tendencies -- hegemonic tendencies of some countries that seek to exploit the united nations to achieve their own interests at the expense of other countries. we hope that the united nations can take the people of the world to a better future that fulfills their aspirations for life, coexistence, development and food sufficiency, and away from all forms of tension, confrontation and wars, pursuant

in pennsylvania's controversial voter i.d. law. we have been waiting for this. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams joins me live. >> the judge said the new voter i.d. law in pennsylvania, the strict new i.d. law cannot go in effect for the general election. there is a chance the state could appeal this to the state's supreme court, but based on what the supreme court said last time they looked at this, it's doubtful they would succeed there. what the judge says here is yes, it's true. the state has said we can fix some of the problems that have come up before, but he says, i question whether there is enough time now to fix these problems. i think there are going to be more problems down the road putting this into effect like we've already seen, he says. he believes that the gap between the photo i.d.'s issued and the estimated need cannot be closed before the election. in other words, he says all the people who would have to get new photo i.d.s, he doubts there is enough time for them to get them. he says i'm not convinced in my predictive judgment there won't be any voter disenfranchisem

are entrusting you with additional funds to you can go out and ensure that these laws we placed on the books are taken care of. >> and just a point on that, my understanding is that a lot of that money will deal with the backlog that olse has -- adding additional resources. >> we have a number of other departments, olse had a lengthier presentation, hopefully we can move more expeditiously in the other departments. so, we'll now move to the department of public health. welcome. >> thank you so much, supervisors, i want to give you a sense of the city option we've been talking about, then go into the department of public health response tos the civil grand jury report, so we used the term healthy san francisco broadly within san francisco, but we're really talking about from the department's perspective in terms of our response, the city option. that is the option that allows an employer to indicate that they would like to contribute dollars to the city and county of san francisco and their employees will get either eligibility for healthy san francisco and enroll in that program or their emp

against that state's new voter i.d. law for now. a judge in the past few hours blocked the law from goalkeeper into effect. judge simpson ordered the sat not to enforce the voter i.d. requirement in this year's election, but it will go into full effect next year. opponents of the law say it would hurt voter turnover, especially among minorities and the leeld he who are likely to vote for democrats in that state. it was in june that a top state republican lawmaker predicted the law would help governor romney. >> which is going to allow governor romney to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> and joining us now, judith brown, diana's co-director of the advancement project, a civil rights organization that filed the lawsuit. thank you for your time. we played that state lawmaker who said if that law was in effect in pennsylvania, he felt that governor romney would win that state, done. the polling shows opposite. nevertheless there was a concern. let's talk about the split decision. the judge is blocking it for now, but what happens next? >> well, you know, this is a big victory for
. >>> also tonight a big court ruling for voters in one of the states that passed a law requiring identification at the polls on election day. in pennsylvania, the tough new law is now on hold after a judge said it cannot be enforced on election day, which, of course, is just 35 days away now. more on this story from our justice correspondent pete williams. >> for months, voters have struggled to meet pennsylvania's strict new requirement for a government issued photo i.d. at the polls. a law democrats claim republicans pushed to suppress the turnout among poor and minority voters. first, the state says drivers without a driver's license would need a state issued i.d. card. but because that's a secure i.d. that can be used to board planes, voters needed a birth certificate and three forms of identification to get one. >> and it took me days just to get my i.d. >> reporter: then the state relented and began issuing a new i.d., good only for voting, but kept shifting the requirements for it. >> this was a hastily drawn law designed to disrupt the vote for the presidential election.
of noncompliance of the state law and should be a policy of the commission for that provision. that's one thing. and the other thing i wanted to point out is that the agenda for tonight did not include the minutes. just said that you were going to vote for the minutes. it would be nice if you could put that to the next meeting for those of us who have not seen those have a period to comment. thank you. >> good afternoon, commissioner hur and ethic commissioners. i am troubled that you scheduled my two cases on today's agenda. it's unethical for the ethics commission to even decide a case involving your own executive director. and the whole case should have been transferred to another jurisdiction. not just for developing a recommendation. but for holding any sort of public hearing on the matter. mr. chatfield, when he transferred my case to san jose. noted in the cover mail, quote, the ethic's commission regularly handles cases for the sunshine force act. and however cannot be (inaudible) as executive director is the named respondent in both claims, end quote. it should be argued that the ethic
in the health care law changes that one bit. >> brown: now the case that they did argue today. it's about using u.s. courts to bring international human rights law into effect against multinational corporations. >> right. brown: trying to spit it out. mulley national corporations is what i'm trying to say. >> it involves a 1789 law, the alien tort statute. very simple, straight-forward law that says federal courts have jurisdiction over actions brought by aliens who have been basically injuredded by violations of international law or violations of treaties of the united states. this is oal business. the court heard arguments last term on whether corporations could be held liable under that statute. then it later ordered reargument on a broader question. that is whether these cases can be brought in u.s. courts against any defendant who committed a violation in a foreign country. and today the court heard arguments on that. it's hard to tell. it seemed a number of justices were not happy with business' approach which is to say there is no extra territorial application of this law, period. and ye
surveillance by the federal government and they are challenging the law that allows electronic surveillance, this wiretapping because they're concerned that their case will be picked up. they're claiming to have standing to challenge this law because even though the surveillance might be directed overseas to people they're talking to get their dedication will get picked up in the course of that surveillance and so therefore they have the right to challenge it in court. that is the standing issue we we are dealing with. just to get to the merits for a minute, and the aftermath of the exposÉ in the mid-70's about various abuses in the intelligence community and in short in short is set up a system by which the executive branch would have to go to the court surveillance court here in d.c. and get permission when they wanted to do wiretapping for national security purpose to give sworn intelligence information. this is way of making sure that the court, there was a court that had to check and had a role in reviewing the government's effort to do this wiretapping which they ended up using in in

signing statements, which i thought he was saying he did not have to obey the law, but what happened was, there was a legitimate, strong argument being made by the president's supporters in favor of why the president had the use statements to distance himself from legislation. there were also very strong arguments by people like me who says that that is unconstitutional. the american bar association appointed a task force to look into these findings and i was a member of that task force, and then the president of the aba and i testified before a house committee and, guess what? even though a good face was being made for the president to issue and sign the statements, not one single democrat, not one saw any merit in his argument. even though i thought and a lot of other people thought that what the president was doing was clearly unconstitutional, the president saying i don't have to obey the law that i just time, not one republican done anything wrong with it. on issue after issue, foreign policy or anything else, we divide into these parties. first of all, there is nothing in the const
here was the issue. the pennsylvania passes this new voter i.d. law in march. people that didn't have a driver's license, a government-issued photo i.d. could get the michigan state identification card. then the state said that can be used to board airplanes. we need all sorts of forms of identification. then the state changed its mind and said we'll issue a voter i.d. card that's different. only if you can't get the other card. then they changed their mind on that. the judge said i can't be sure. even though the state has now cured a lot of these problems, i can't be sure enough people are going to be able to get the right kind of identification to allow this law to go into effect. i'm going to let the state continue to educate people about the need for photo i.d. i'm going to let the state ask for photo i.d. atle positive, but enjoin the part of the law that requires voters to have photo i.d. people wanted it all put on hold. the judge said i don't need to go that far. there is always the possibility the state could go back to the supreme court on this, but begin how skeptica
guantanamo regardless of the state of law to thompson. that is my penal as attorney general. >> skeptics including one of the vocal critics of the original plan, congressman frank wolf remained doubtful. >> you can't take the attorneyien at his word. >> that is not world's only objection. >> as of now you are fined violation of the senate earmark been a, if you have an earmark been a, i think the american people are really expecting you to live up to it. >> reporter: others argue the $165 million request came directly from the executive branch, which isn't bound by congressmember self-imposed earmark band. it doesn't meet the definition of an earmark. house appropriation committee chair republican hal rogers called the prison purchase backdoor move by the administration and pledging full opposition by the appropriation committee. supporters of the deal say there have been bipartisan support. several republicans including congressman done manzulo and shilling publicly praised the transfer. today, illinois democrat durbin said president obama desevens credit for getting the deal done. >> i
, it is not necessarily in the exact timing or form that the current law baseline looks out right now, but sticking with the essential elements. those of you who know me know that i am quite fond of the current law baseline. in the past i have said what we need to do is to follow a strict pay-as-you-go. i am tired of exempting this and ignoring that. let's stick to strict pay-as- you-go. pay-go noit to exceptions. i will just modify that today and say instead of pay-ago, is re-go. recycle as you go. set targets that congress says, by this date, we will have achieved this goal. the budget committees and the budget process to enforce this. there is something called budget conciliates -- reconciliation where they've direct the budget and other entities with jurisdiction over the program to come up with reforms, for spending targets. the announcement we need is what tells us whether we want to use this can like this, or do we melt it down and reshape its four different parts of the whole system. if we want to give tax cuts low, we need to broaden the base. and what are some different trade-offs? how mu
don't want to do is send them back with something passed, and signed into law, that's going to cause them to sort of spin around chasing their tails and ultimately the program doesn't happen because what we've inserted in is a poison pill. i'm not interested in putting any poison pills in here so i have some questions, i'm trying to ferret out whether particularly the second one -- i guess one and two, are poison pills, and also if there are ways that they don't have to be poison pills. so i guess my first question is -- we know that state law requires an opt-out. there's now an amendment that requires, in a way, sort of a preliminary or initial opt-in to show a certain level of support before proceeding. i have -- my question is, for whoever can answer it, whether we are able to do that. to have sort of a -- some form of an opt-in that precedes the opt-out. >> deputy city attorney teresa mueller. supervisor, it's absolutely right that state law prohibits an opt-in for this program and requires opt-out. and our view of this requirement is that it's a requirement for how the program w
in on what's at stake here. since president obama's health care law was enacted, 3.1 million people under the age of 26 are now covered by their parents' plans, and preventive care is covered 100% by insurance companies. seniors in particular have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole will start getting some help. they'll receive $250 to help pay for prescriptions, and that will over time fill in the doughnut hole. >> 5.5 million seniors have saved a total of $4.5 billion on prescription drugs since it was enacted. hi also plans to slow spending on medicare. >> i've strengthened medicare. we've added years to life of medicare. we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies that weren't making pea hemmier. >> reporter: by 2014 the law requireser everyone to have health insurance, whether they purchase it themselves or through employers and insurers can't deny you if you have a pre-existing condition or increase your rates. the law has become a cornerstone or the obama campaign. >> i refuse to eliminate health insurance for mill

up. he will assess it objectively. he will make decisions based upon the data and apply the law. if you do that in this case, there is reasonable justification for continuation of the end exclusivity region of the end exclusivity ban. -- of the exclusivity ban. this is been the position in the proceeding. our order lasts until 2018. forever it applies to, it applies to. after that time, we should be treated like everybody else. if people believe that it is appropriate for it to continue, and they need to go back to congress and get different legislation. the current legislation does not support the ban and the current competitive posture. >> what happens when october 5 rolls around? do we suddenly see several? >> i do not think so. the fears had been overstated. i do not know for sure. the marketplace is that many of these networks require broad distribution to be successful. exclusivity marrow's this. to get the economic equivalent of a broadly distributed channel when you enter into an exclusive arrangement results and a large aphelion -- a feeling it. i am not sure what the a
